Avery Coonley Residence

The Metropolitan Museum in New York has three windows from the Coonley Playhouse. As stated by Thomas A. Heinz in his Frank Lloyd Wright: Glass Art book: "The playful, random quality of the positions of the lines and flashed glass is among the finest examples of abstract art by any artist."

Unfortunately, I only had a low-resolution digital camera with me and flash was not permitted in the museum. I'm taking a photography course and am planning to upgrade to a better camera soon....

The museum also has an exhibit of the living room from the Francis W. Little Residence.
